SparkFriends, I am BEAMING from last night’s awards ceremony.
BEST PRODUCTION OF A MUSICAL IN AN INTIMATE THEATER
DIRECTOR OF A MUSICAL
FEATURED ACTRESS IN A MUSICAL (not me, but my castmate)
ACTING ENSEMBLE OF A MUSICAL (the biggest honor of them all!)
We screamed and laughed so much that most of us were hoarse by the end of the night. In fact, my throat hurts from it all! Not only were my castmates and I dressed to impress, but we had something other than a program to take home! On to the pictures…
Me and my award 10 minutes after winning!
The theatre was absolutely beautiful and the night was perfect. Compliments abounded as a lot of my cast/crew/production team hadn't seen me since the show closed in June. I was beyond proud of our show and beyond proud to see how far I've come. I felt like royalty and felt absolutely beautiful. I'm going on 4 hours of sleep, but man was it worth it! To top it all off, I didn't snack on the desserts they had for us and stayed far away from the bar. SO proud! In fact, I haven't stopped smiling since I started getting dressed for the ceremony around 1:30pm yesterday. After we won, I stood around just watching everyone with the biggest smiles on their face in absolute wonderment and shock. We worked hard, we put our souls into the production and this was the result. Just amazing...
Thank you all so much for encouraging me and being absolutely wonderful during this entire process. I'm nothing without my SparkFriends!
